In this episode of the Vault Sessions, @Robben Ford talks Mickey Baker, the importance of Paul Butterfield Blues Band, his desire to be jazz player, and the day that he realized he didn’t know any chords. Robben was selected as one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician magazine. He also was a member of the L.A. Express and Yellowjackets, and he has collaborated with Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Larry Carlton, Rick Springfield, Kiss, and more. He plays one of our 1958 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop "Darkback" and a one-of-a-kind Natural Red Mahogany Fender Telecaster. He also plays his 1960 Telecaster and Epiphone Riviera.
